Help SKSN Swim!

Friday, 30 December 2011

SKSN are embarking on a brand new project, to build a swimming pool at the school. This will allow many of the children to have therapy in the water and also help encourage activity with the local community.

As regular readers of our blogs will know, we have been supporting SKSN School for a number of years now through donations and trade links with a vocational training scheme. This is a big project for the school which would enable the physically disabled pupils to benefit from a swimming pool. The school is home to around 550 male and female pupils aged from 5-25, many of who have been affected by polio, are amputees or have been injured.

In 2003 Dawn Fraser, an Australian Olympic swimmer visited the school and realised the benefits that a swimming pool would bring to the children. Then in 2010, when an Australian family visited this ideal has now become reality and the fundraising has started. The aim is to raise $25,000 (US Dollars) to help make this reality. To find out more information and to see how you can help by making a small donation from as little as $25 which will contribute to the cost of a tube well to keep the swimming pool full of water, simply click here.

The swimming pool has been designed to make use of the Rajasthan heat with Solar panels to heat the pool and the roof has been designed to catch any rain water in the dessert environment! The pool has also been designed for use by pupils with varying disabilities.
